Galeano, Joseph

, a physician of great repute at Palermo; and not for skill and learning in his profession only, but for his taste also, and knowledge of theology, mathematics, poetry, and polite literature in general, was born in 1605. There are several works of his in Italian, upon different maladies; and some also in Latin, particularly “Hippocrates Redivivus paraphrasibus illustratus,” published in 1650. We owe to him also a collection of little pieces of the Sicilian poets, entitled “The Sicilian Muse,” in five volumes. He died in 1675, greatly regretted; for he was a kind of oracle with his countrymen. 3
